More than 50 merchants have signed up for the crew incentive program in Aruba, featuring special discounts and offers to crew who show their identification cards. Participating merchants are predominantly in Oranjestad and range from perfumes and cosmetics to convenience stores and restaurants. They are identified by window sticker reading Crew Incentive Merchant.

Also in Aruba, the Port of Oranjestad confirmed its ISPS compliance following a Coast Guard survey in July.
